7.  Healthy Krispy Treats

You really can’t go wrong with Krispy Treats — they’re crunchy, they’re chewy, they’re super sweet, and they’re packed with fluffy marshmallows.  Oh wait, yeah, that’s the problem…  they’re full of fructose and corn syrup, preservatives, and artificial food dyes (yuck).  That’s why I made these Healthy Krispy Treats!
